A typical day in my life includes…

college, homework, my day job, designing and marketing for Nani and hopefully a nap somewhere in between.

I was born…

on April Fool’s Day, so my life is pretty much a joke.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

I don’t know, I’ve never been but I’ve heard it’s warm!

I’m listening to…

either country music or Ted Talks 90% of the time.

My family…

is my everything.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Phil Knight.

One thing I cannot live without…

Chic-Fil-A.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a princess.

I’m inspired by…

traveling, meeting people and experiencing different cultures.

The one person who motivates me is…

my dad.

My personal style…

is best described as “I didn’t expect to get out of the car”.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

the way everyone in society views themselves.

The perfect day would be… 

that’s a tough one. I would have to say April 25th because it’s not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket.

My first job was…

a summer science camp counselor. I was 14 years old and I rode my razor scooter over five miles to get to work every day. 

My favorite escape…

is hiking in the mountains, going on a run or blasting some music and driving up a canyon.

My life…

is like a romantic comedy minus the romance and just me laughing at my own jokes.

I’m currently working on…

finalizing all of our 2019 designs and sketching new ideas for 2020.

I can’t wait for Phoenix Fashion Week because…

I get to meet and be inspired by other designers and see my own designs hit the runway!

Always…

“Stay humble and kind” -Tim McGraw.

Never…

underestimate yourself.

Favorite Quote…

“Empowered women empower women”.

Biggest Dream…

being able to tie a cherry stem in a knot with my tongue in under 30 seconds.

My Pet Peeve… 

when a boy texts to ask me on a date instead of calling.
